      finally installed the motor mount yesterday afternoon, the process was very easy. much less of a pain in the butt compared to removing the battery for the tranny mount. i've only had a chance to put about five or so miles on it but so far it's a huge upgrade. removed a lot of the clunking that occurred when letting my foot off the gas, and the car feels incredibly tight with power going straight to the wheels now.

      i can't put enough stress on how high the quality is on this part. i was simply blown away when it arrived. i have no doubt that anyone who purchases this mount will be 100% satisfied, and have a very large grin after installation

      on another note...i stripped the bolt in the photo below. really pissed me off, as i don't believe it was over torqued. i've never had to deal with a stripped bolt before, how do i get this fixed? fortunately it's still pretty tight, but i can't torque it to spec....



      here's a video of the movement on my stock motor mount, with 80K miles on it:

      as mentioned in another thread, tap it or use a helicoil.
      i agree on the quality of the product
      my motor mounts where around 70k when i replaced them and yeah, the amount of flex was ridiculous

      Just opened the box and installed this bad boy today - Absolutely amazing build quality, 100% solid with great fit and finish.

      Results? Fantastic - Still not broken in yet, only about 60 miles on it, but it's night and day the difference this makes.

      The slop on the OEM mount with only 45k on my car was obnoxious.

      If you enjoy your car, BUY ONE NOW!!!

      Question - So the motor mount came with new bolts.. but the transmission insert did not - Was it ok for me to use the old bolts from the transmission mount?

      If not, how long do i have before i should get new ones from the dealer

      Thanks!

      its recommended to change em every time you remove em.

      but the transmission isnt going to fall out because you re used them. lol

      Looking forward to it.

      Also, keep an eye out for our complete replacement transmission mounts.
      The stage 1 prototype survived the abuse inflicted by my 2.5T and our first batch has finished production.
      More details to come..

      Pete, I installed my torque arm insert. What a huge difference! Found out shortly after my buddy has one with one of your competitors, so I was inclined to test his out. I have to say, your product is WAY better!

      Dont know really if it is the stage 2 or not. They only offer 1 for the 08 and down. The '09+ have 2 different stages.

      For the '09+ the stage 1 is yellow and the stage 2 is green. Mine is green, I would assume its the same strength as the stage 2 for the '09 and up.

      Pete, am I correct?

      The trans insert is still a great value and did a great job managing my Stage 2.5T. The complete replacement unit just does the job that much better.
      Pleasure meeting you as well. I wish I could've gotten out of the booth and roamed around a bit more!

      I told you! Torque arm insert is a must! I'm glad you're enjoying it.

      Yes, you're correct. 2005.5-2008 vehicles have different torque arm bushings then 2009+ vehicles.

      Is the complete mount a different solution than the pre-assembled stage2 mount that is currently available? If so, is there an ETA? Its time for mounts and I'm trying to hold out for a complete solution.
